Anyone else find themselves steering the camera with the corners like a video game? Pretty cool camera!

Here's my take on it all. First off, stupid video. Was kinda funny for a few seconds but quickly realized that it had no logic or reason to back their arguement against 29ers. Just sounded like it was a DH scene kid ripping on them cause his friends do and has prolly never ridden one himself. I have tried 2 different 29ers. A Spesh Stuppy and an Giant Anthem. I was shocked how good they feel. They roll like a road bike. Very fast & smooth. The transition was fast, and I felt comfordable on them right away.

I think the big problem with making a DH 29er is wheel strength. I'd be afraid of tacoing my wheel sets all the time riding rough trails. But I think in a few more years with a little more R&D they might start to own a piece of the market share (Not saying they'll over take 26inch. But some people might switch in time). What's my idea.... (I'm no engineer so don't slam me on my ideas haha) maybe develope a lager hub to shorten the spoke length. This way you keep the big wheel but not giving up too much strength. Problem with that is you are gonna add weight to your wheels. I donno, it's an idea at least.

The point is.... Go ride one before you judge. They might not be relevant in DH yet, but we never know what the future holds. Ride on everyone!

Added a comment about video Freeride's Dead 7/12/2011 4:23 AM
C138x104

I started freeriding when I was about 12/13 years old, which was about 1995. At the time I didn't know I was freeriding, I was just riding with friends. Exploring new places I’ve never been. Coming home, cut, scraped and bruised, but always with a huge smile on my face. I didn't even really know what the word was or what it ment. At the time it was still just a novelty concept that I read about in magazines. I remember seeing the pics and reading the articles of these guys in BC doing something that looked so inspiring to me. Since 95 I've continued to freeride and still do today. It is what our sport is based upon, and how everyone gets into it. No one enters a contest the 1st time they step on a mtb (Race or FR). You go head out with your friends and explore your local woods, while doing something that you love. And for me that's what mtb is and always will be. The adventure of finding somewhere new. Dig out a line and rip it! Riding for the love of the bike. Sorry for the long post but I just hated seeing that “freerides dead” article. Cause for freeride to die all, mountain bikes would have to disappear from the earth. And that will never happen! Long live Freeride, Races, and FR comps. Collectively…. Long live mountain biking!

Good lord! Take a big set of bollocks to steal something like that! Sadly anyone stealing something like that is a pro, and it's probably chopped up by now already. I hope they find it though, F*#@ing dick heads.

Wow what tough conditions for a race. Everyone has a foot out everywhere. Skidding sideways. No line choices, just following the mud rut where ever it takes you. Then at 2:20 Troy just hammers through it like nothing. Totally confident. How long until he beats Sam at a World Cup?

Really looking forward to VAL D’ISERE and Norway. Hoping for a new USA course other then Windham. I like Windham, but I like to see new tracks too. Fort Bill, MSA and Val Di Sole should be annuals, but I like new tracks every year too. Or at least revisit some old ones. I miss Vail!!!
